MENOMONIE, Wis. (AP) – Police in Menomonie say they’ve made an arrest in the death of a University of Wisconsin-Stout student.

Authorities say toxicology tests show 23-year-old Jesse Jensen had a mix of oxycodone, morphine and alcohol in her system.

Court documents filed earlier in Dunn County say a 27-year-old Owen man told police he provided drugs to Jensen the night before he found her without a pulse the morning of Jan. 23. A search warrant says the man told investigators he warned Jensen not to ingest an entire oxycodone tablet he provided because it was too much for her.

WEAU-TV says the man was arrested Wednesday on possible charges of first-degree reckless homicide and drug delivery.
